Forum steering committee vacancies 2018

We have three vacancies on our forum’s steering committee. We meet in person at least once a year to form our annual strategic plan, usually at RCN HQ in London. We then meet more frequently by teleconference to monitor how our work is progressing. There may be additional work depending on the number of projects to be delivered as set out in our strategic plan.

Joining the committee is a great way for you to take a step up if you’re looking for a new professional challenge.  You’ll develop your strategic communication and leadership skills which will enhance your CV and career prospects.  And as well as giving you a valuable opportunity to network with colleagues from around the UK, you will inform and have the chance to deliver:

  • Debates and fringe vents at RCN Congress
  • Conferences and workshops   
  • Up to date guidance and publication

Don't miss the deadline, make sure you send in your application by 4.30 pm on Monday 30 July.
